"Willa,” to her friends and family, was one of the kindest most compassionate ladies that ever graced the lives of those around her. Her dignity and integrity were what she was all about. There are many definitions of integrity, but the family thought this one suited her best: Integrity: means that our ultimate goal and final decisions always lead back to being obedient in following the Lord.
